"I think the most useful thing about the conference was the atmosphere. It was very non-pretentious and inviting. As someone who has never attended a conference before, I suppose I had some preconceived notion. But I thought everyone from the facilitators to the attendees to the panelists were accessible and friendly and helpful. The sense of community and new relationships was well worth it."
